Title: Studies of einsteinium metal

Abstract

Thin films of einsteinium metal were prepared by reducing Es/sub 2/O/sub 3/ with lanthanum, distilling the einsteinium metal, and condensing it on carbon substrates supported by electron microscopy grids. The metal deposits were then analyzed by electron diffraction. The results show that vapor-deposited einsteinium metal is divalent and exhibits a fcc phase (a/sub 0/ = 5.75(1)A) very similar to that reported for the expanded form of californium metal.
